A practical, regio- and diastereoselective synthesis of vicinal chloramines from electron-deficient olefins and Chloramine-T is promoted by Brønsted acids in water. This novel protocol is efficient, mild, ecofriendly, and broadly applicable for the aminochlorination of various electron-deficient olefins including α,β-unsaturated ketones, cinnamate, and cinnamide.
